We were very fortunate that there were gifts o'plenty under the Christmas tree this year. I myself received some very nice loot, but perhaps my very favorite gift this year is not one of my own, but one my daughter received.
She received a small shiny blue laptop at her dad's house.
Am I happy about it because she can use it for homework? Well, sort of. But my glee is more about the fact that she is now able to email me.
It would be fun for any parent to receive emails from their tween girl, I'm sure. But my girl lives away from me 50% of the time. It's awesome to be able to communicate with her during those four long days when she's not around.
Sure, we talk on the phone, but seeing those unopened emails from my girl is like a little present each and every time; most are full of love, and hugs and kisses. Although her very first email to me was all business:
Hi Mom....it's A! I have email now and Skype because Santa gave me a blue laptop. You should download Skype so we can video chat.
Video chat? That would be fun, honey. She then also complained that I’m never available to “Google Talk.” First of all it’s “Google Chat,” honey, and secondly, I’d be happy to make myself available to chat with you.
But so far we haven’t. We just keep adding on to this second message she sent
Hi mom it's a I miss you already.
I always miss you, A! Hope you're having a great day :-)
